TextaQueen: Between You and Me
TextaQueen has developed an enviable reputation for her compelling portraits that explore gender, race and identity through the medium of fibre-tipped pens. Bringing together work created over a 15 year period, her survey exhibition will reflect on how visual and popular culture inform personal identity via re-interpretations of the salon nude, re-creations of cultural and historical identities undressed in the Australian landscape, critiques of colonial histories in apocalyptic movie poster portraits and in recent work articulating the evolution of TextaQueen’s own identity as an Australian-born Goan Indian. Using contemporary portraiture with popular culture motifs to critique the western art canon and examine ethnocultural and colonial legacies, TextaQueen’s compelling works make perceptive social commentary.
